Dracaena Green Jewel grows up to 4-5 feet. It is a strongly upright plant that tends to drop its lower leaves, exposing the stalk as it ages. This plant should be grown in bright indirect sunlight, but is known to tolerate lower light levels. Dracaenas require even moisture, good soil drainage, and cannot tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America. NASA studies reveal that Dracaenas absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, as all plants do, but these plants also eliminate significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.
our Dracaena Twister prefers medium indirect sunlight but can survive in low light situations. Brown spots on the leaves or pale, bleached leaves usually indicate the plant is getting too much light. Slow growth and small new leaves indicate it is not getting enough light.
Water your plant thoroughly and allow the top 75% of the soil to dry before watering again. In low light, allow the soil to dry completely before watering. Water your plant less in the winter, when light levels are lower and growth has slowed. Overwatering will cause leaves to turn yellow and fall off. Overwatering causes root rot and is the main reason a Dracaena plant dies.
Your Dracaena Twister will do well in average humidity household humidity but will appreciate regular misting.
This plant likes normal room temperatures between 65-80 degrees. They do not do well in temperatures below 55 degrees. Cold winter drafts and blowing heaters can damage the leaves.
Dracaena Twister needs very little plant food. Feed once or twice a year in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food diluted to half the recommended strength. Too much fertilizer will cause the leaf tips to burn.
Dracaena Twister leaves are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.
